In this sermon, we looked at 1 Peter 3:8-22 where Peter sums up the instructions he has given to the believers exiled in Asia Minor. Peter tells them to have unity of mind in the things of Christ and other virtues that will help them support each other in the suffering they are experiencing in an unbelieving society. He instructs them not to repay evil to those who speak evil of them or insult them but to bless because they are blessed. Peter encourages these Christians by reminding them that God sees their suffering and hears their prayers. He also reminds them that it’s better to suffer for good than evil because Christ also suffered in order to make us alive in Christ. As we are united with Christ in suffering, we are reminded of the hope and life we have in Him.
